The Fortunes of Nigel, by Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832)
During the turbulent moment in English history involving King James 1 and 6, Nigel Olifaunt, a Scottish lord, seeks to protect his family home and holdings, but who meets with recalcitrance and treachery, which eventually results in his imprisonment. But there are forces of good that help to set him free and to right injustices.

MW coming up.

edit: I added a section 0 for the introductions. Combined they would be 60-70m long. I can renumber the sections so they start with 1 if you prefer (even after you record the introductions).

I think it would be best to go with sections because I have a feeling that some of the chapters may need to be divided. In other words, it may difficult to maintain section matching chapter. Does that make sense? I can go in and change things in the set-up if you agree. Jim

What fools these mortals be! Here it is with an outro. I should mention that I set this up so that the outro will mention the chapter number, not the section. In this case, it is "end of Introduction." Jim

Here is Section 2. This one is funny. I am beginning to wonder if this book is in part satire.
